To protect against the potentially
devastating consequences of hypothermia,
follow these simple guidelines:
Try to limit your time outdoors,
especially if you are in a high-risk
If you are forced to be outside during
cold weather, wear warm, layered
clothing made of natural fibers. You
should wear a hat, warm socks and gloves
to reduce heat loss.
Stay indoors on windy days. Even if the
temperature appears to be moderate, wind
chill can substantially increase your
risk of hypothermia.
When indoors, keep your thermostat set
at a comfortable level. Wear warm
clothing, and use enough blankets at
night to keep warm while sleeping.
Choose hot, nourishing meals and drink
warm beverages to keep your
body temperature up.
What Are the Warning Signs of Hypothermia?
Confusion, disorientation, drowsiness
Slow, shallow breathing
Slow, irregular heartbeat
Stumbling and loss of coordination
Remember, even mildly cool temperatures of
60-65 degrees can cause a dangerous drop in
internal body temperature, which can be
deadly if not treated
promptly and properly.
CHANGES IN BUS
TRIP ROUTE STARTING FEB 1st, 2014
Starting February 1st, all the Wednesday
Office for the Aging bus trips will be
rerouted to pick up in Hamden, then
Downsville, then Walton and going out of
Walton down State Highway 10 to Hancock.
Please check the new Central/Western bus
schedule posted on our website to see the
new pickup times. Since we have lost
passengers from the East Branch and Fish's
Eddy area and have gained regular passengers
on State Highway 10 between Walton and
Hancock we are making this change. Should
the Office for the Aging have requests from
the East Branch and Fish's Eddy area we will
look into a feeder system to our new route.
This switch in pickup points is being
implemented on both our Wednesday trips to
Oneonta/Sidney and to Binghamton. If you
have questions about this, please contact
Bonnie Radley at the Office for the Aging by
calling (607) 746-6333.
We hope all riders will be supportive in our
agency’s goal to increase ridership and
improve access to this service, despite some
temporary inconveniences this process might
cause. We thank you for your cooperation and
hope you will continue to use this service.
The Office for the Aging encourages those
seniors age 60 years of age and older and
younger handicapped adults to use the bus
for getting their groceries and other
shopping needs met, as well as to medical
appointments if they can schedule them
between the hours of 11 am and 2 pm, with
appointments being completed no later than 2
Please call the Office for the Aging at
(607) 746-6333 to make a bus reservation to
ride on one of our bus runs.
Vision Statement for the Delaware County
Office For The Aging
The Year 2020
Proposed by the Delaware County
Office For The Aging Advisory Board
Drafted by the Vision Committee, January 12, 2012
We see an environment in Delaware County that encourages and enables older adults to make educated life choices.
We see an era of sensitivity toward our environment, diminishing natural resources and changing economy and its impact on future generations.
We see barrier-free access to comprehensive health care and supportive services.
We see the implementation of a transportation and communication network that supports the needs of older adults.
We see Delaware County with safe, affordable, and comfortable housing for older adults.
We see an environment that nurtures cross generational engagement through both human contact and technology.
We see a caring support system that promotes dignity and independence for older adults.
We see an environment that supports persons in care giving and other family obligations.
We see older adults playing an integral part in the life of the community where they are an accepted and respected part of society.
Since older adults impact the entire Delaware County community in all its complexity and since the entire community
affects all older adults, we see this vision statement as one of a comprehensive vision for the future of Delaware County.
The Delaware County Office For The Aging welcomes donations to help maintain and expand its services to the elderly.
